3 out of 5 stars only 2 glue-in bolts and a 30+ foot runout to anchors

started left. recommend taking medium-sized cams to protect. while clipping 2nd bolt, could deck. while clipping anchors could deck on large ledge. wouldn't recommend to climb if 5.8 is your leading limit.

2 out of 5 stars skip it

guidebook says 4 bolts, I only climbed past 2. Huge jugs and slightly less than vertical angle make it too easy to warm up on. **I know glue ins are supposed to be better/stronger, but damn if they don't look flimsy.

3 out of 5 stars Easy jug haul

This climb can be hard to locate. It's a really easy climb and it's pretty dirty.

2 out of 5 stars Easier than 5.8

The route is easy to protect but topping out is a little dirty.
